Die Lebensbeschreibung Benjamin Franklins (1706 - 1790), der einer der bedeutendsten Staatsmänner der jungen Vereinigten Staaten wurde, gilt als das erste "klassische" Werk der amerikanischen Literatur. Benjamin Franklin, der Sohn eines in die Neue Welt ausgewanderten Seifensieders und Kerzenmachers, berichtet in diesen Lebenserinnerungen von der Kindheit und den Lehrjahren im puritanischen Boston, der Flucht des lebenshungrigen Bücherwurms ins weltoffene Philadelphia und der erfolgreichen Tätigkeit dort, zuerst als Buchdrucker, dann auch als Wissenschaftler und Erfinder. Und er schildert seinen Aufstieg zum angesehenen Bürger und Politiker. Die Autobiographie "dieses weltzugewandten nüchternen Aufklärers und Repräsentanten der jungen amerikanischen Republik, dieses auf den verschiedenartigsten Gebieten unermüdlich tätigen Bürgers", gehöre, schreibt Hans J. Schütz, "gewiss zu den bedeutendsten autobiographischen Zeugnissen eines emanzipierten Bürgertums".
